The Rabbit Hole Designs February Guest Designer

Hello and welcome back to my blog!
I am honored to be guest designing for The Rabbit Hole Designs 
for the month of February!
They are a brand new stamp company and they have some very
unique stamps that feature a line of over-caffeinated critters such as
a unicorn, a dinosaur, an octopus and the cat featured on my card today.
Make sure you check them out to see all of their fun stamp sets!

Ok, so if you have your morning cup of java or cocoa or whiskey
or (whatever gets you moving in the morning)... we'll get started!

The new stamps here at The Rabbit Hole are so much fun to create with!
For today's card I am featuring the Caffeinated Cat stamp.
I am LOVING that CRAZY hair and those adorable bunny slippers!

Shaker cards are one of my favorite types of card to make.
Here is the "How To" for my coffee loving feline card:

Card Recipe

  • My first step was to stamp the cat in Gina K Amalgam ink and color her with my Zig and Copic markers.
  • Next I cut out the stamped image with my Scan and Cut machine.  I love my machine but you could easily fussy cut this image out with scissors.
  • The next thing I did was to stamp the caffeine molecule and #momlife stamp randomly on to some polka dot patterned paper for the background. The patterned paper was cut using the largest die from the Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle Dies.
  • For the top of the shaker I used the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Scalloped Collage Frame die and I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of it. I built the frame up with foam tape so my shaker guts would have room to move around.
  • Now for the fun part! I chose a variety of coffee colored sequins from Kat Scrappiness to fill my card with and I made sure to add a splash of teal to match the coffee cup. The sequin mix consisted of Espresso mix, Caramel Latte mix and Teal Jewels. I placed the sequin mix down on the patterned paper in the spots where I knew the windows were in the collage frame and then I adhered the frame over the sequins.
  • All that was left was to add my sentiment and cat to the front of the card.  I stamped the sentiment on to some brown card stock with white ink and embossed with WOW bright white embossing powder.  I cut the sentiment into 3 separate strips and popped them up on foam tape. Oh yeah...... kitty got popped up too!😂

Here are some close up pictures to see the details better:

I also have a video for you so you can see how I created
this Caffeinated Cat shaker card.
Please excuse the extreme closeup view in the video,
I have a new camera and I'm still figuring things out.
You can watch the video here or on YouTube.

Thanks so much for joining me today!
I really enjoyed sharing my card and video with you.
